Ether Price Analysis
In the weekly analysis, we discussed a possible bullish break above $145.00 in ETH/USD. The pair did break the $142.00-145.00 resistance and tested the $150.00 resistance, where sellers emerged.
ETH/BTC tested the 0.0375BTC resistance level and later corrected lower. The pair is currently consolidating above the 0.0350BTC support and might continue to trade in a range before the next move, either toward 0.0375BTC or toward 0.0320BTC.
Looking at the 2-hour chart of ETH/USD, the pair formed a support base near $114.71 and later started a strong upward move. Ether even breached the $130.00 and $142.00 resistance levels. Buyers gained momentum above the $145.00 resistance and traded as high as $150.06.
However, there was no proper close above $145.00 and the price started consolidating gains. It moved below the 23.6 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the recent wave from the $114.71 low to $150.06 high.
To the downside, there is a decent support formed at $135.00 and a bullish trendline. The main support is near the $130.00 level and the 50 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the recent wave.
To start a fresh bullish wave, the price must break the $142.00 and $145.00 resistance levels, above which buyers are likely to clear the $150.00 resistance. The main resistance awaits near the last swing high at $160.00.
Overall, the current price action is slightly bearish below $140.00. A successful break above the $145.00 barrier will most likely open the doors for an upside acceleration toward the $150.00 and $160.00 barriers. On the flip side, a break below $130.00 may push the price back toward $115.00
